*clap* *clap* for Sveta! I love the ones with Ella. I had only seen the last couple before. I like AG a lot as well. I was going to look through my collection for photos but I don't think I have any different ones! I've cropped ones before to just get Alexandra but there from the groups you've posted already. Photos of her are hard to get (and I spend enough money trying!) because she died so young.

Dear Svetabel,

Thank you so very much for the lovely pictures of the Grand Duchess Alexandra Georgievna, nee Princess of Greece.

She really was lovely. What a loss it must have been.
Thank you again for your sharing !

from the memoirs of Alexei Volkov (who worked for GD Paul)

"Their family life flowed there; peacefully and serenely. A first child was born, Grand Duchess Marie Pavlovna. The people most close and dear to him during this time were Grand Duke Serge Alexandrovich and his wife Grand Duchess Elizabeth Feodorovna. Unfortunately, this idyllic family would not last long. Grand Duke Serge Alexandrovich was named to be Governor General of Moscow. He practiced the greatest hospitality, in general, and above all his pleasure was great whenever he had his parents as guests. Grand Duke Paul and Grand Duchess Alexandra frequently saw them at their homes in Moscow and at Ilynskoe. At those times there would be balls in their honor, all very lively, and picnics and receptions without end. It was in Ilynskoe, Moscow Government, than an unexpected and fatal event took place for the Grand Ducal couple. The Grand Duchess, who was awaiting the birth of a second child, fainted one day during a ball, and was stricken with violent pains of premature childbirth. She was immediately taken to her apartments. This sad accident was the result of some imprudence on the part of the Grand Duchess the day before. At the estate at Ilynskoe, on the bank of the Moscow River, a dingy was permanently moored. The Grand Duchess took frequent walks there with her friends. She would not take the small path that led down to where the dingy was moored, but instead always jumped from a small ledge down directly into the dingy. That day, she did that again, despite her advanced pregnancy. This accident of which I speak and the resulting premature birth of the child - later the Grand Duke Dmitri Pavlovich- were the result. Everything was done to save the Grand Duchess. The efforts of doctors, the ultimate in their science, were all in vain. Grand Duchess Alexandra Georgievna died after two days of terrible suffering. It is quite impossible for me to describe the despair of Grand Duke Paul Alexandrovich. "

Thanks to you all - Mandie and Tania! Special thanks to GDElla! :) I can always count ou you! :D

As for the death of Gd Alexandra. When she collapsed there was no any gynecologist round there! No any experienced doctor, only old midwife who knew not so much...Poor Alexandra died in a state of coma in 2-3 days (I read in some book that she died in 7 days but this sounds unbelievable). :(

Are there pics of AG with her son? Or is she died by his birth?

I've never seen though somewhere (at the Archives I think) must be an engraving at least.

The 2nd edition of State Secretary Alexander Polovtzov's journals (in Russian). A great source of info as his records were embracing a period of 1883-1892 years.

After Alexandra & Paul married did he accompany her to the family get togethers in Denmark?
Or did they as a couple attend any of them?

Interesting question. :) If it's considered that Alexandra was pregnant in 1889-1891 years with Maria and  then with Dmirtiy so she possibly had not time for family gatherings in Denmark. :-/  I'll try to check out sources such as Empress MF and Alexander III's correspondence.
